Node rebalancing

Node rebalancing

New Contributor

I am currently working on a cluster that is on CDH 5.4.0.


The data appears to be distributed evenly across its data nodes. However this is not the case for the volumes of the individual nodes.


Is there a way to rebalance the volumes of a node so that the data is spread evenly within it? If so, what is the recomended approach?


Re: Node rebalancing


did you try runining the HDFS balancer using command line or cloudera manager 

is that something you would consider ?

Just run it via the command line following the documentation.

What I am trying to achieve is described in the below. However this feature is only available to CDH 5.8.2. Any idea how it can be done in 5.4.0? Are there any steps?
